Image from Theo. And I don't even think it's the wrong decision to bring them home. Me, I might even do it, but if I did I'd do it now, and do it quick. Win it, or come home now. I wouldn't leave them there to fight if they weren't going to be allowed to win. Because it's not free.
Even if there were an election coming. Especially if there were an election coming, and I were their Commander In Chief.
This President ran for election on the platform of bringing them home. Now he finds, like Augustine, that "not just yet" is best. It's the most cynical move I've ever seen my government make during wartime, and I remember Vietnam. It makes me physically sick.
